    Temperature sensors leaking

    I have a aluminum thermostat housing and I noticed coolant on the housing. I thought the bypass hose was bad, so I just replaced that and now it looks like the sensors are leaking. The housing is only a few months old so I'm wondering is there a fix or do I have to replace the sensors?

    Ranger Flare side/ step side bed dimension .

    I have a 2004 Ranger FX4 extended cab with a step side bed and I was wondering if all the step side/ flare side have the same dimensions and are they mounted the same? Because the outer fenders are plastic or fiberglass I was thinking I might be able to find a bed that isn't rusted in the bottom...

    I have a rattle when it warms up. 04 FX4 with 246000 miles. I've owned it for a little over a year, it had 244000 miles on it when I bought it.

    Amp location

    Is this the amp on my 04 Fx4 ? I want to install a cheap subwoofer and according to schematic it has a amp. All I need is a place to tie in to a speaker wire and figured it is supposed to have a amp so that would be the best place.

    Ignition Switch won't go back to power up radio?

    I got a 2004 FX4 and when I try to turn the key back to listen to the radio it doesn't work. The only way I can get it to get power to the radio is turn the key to the run position and that turns all the start up lights on the dash on. I don't think it's normal but I don't know much?
